Speed

METRIC (DECIMAL)

Most countries use the Metric System, which uses the measuring units such as meters and grams and adds prefixes like kilo, milli and centi to count orders of magnitude.

  • Speed = 467 m/s
  • Speed = 4.67 * 102 m/s (scientific)
  • Speed = 466.67 m/s (engineering)
  • IMPERIAL

    In the USA and UK, the older Imperial system is used, where things are measured in feet, inches and pounds.

  • Speed = 1,680,000 m/hr
  • Speed = 1,531 ft/sec
  • Time

  • Time = 604,800 secs = 1.0 wks
  • = 604.8 * 103 sec(s)
  • = 10.08 * 103 min(s)
  • = 168 hr(s)
  • = 7 day(s)
  • = 1 wk(s)
  • Speed x Time = Distance

  • Distance = 282,240,000 meter
  • = 282.24 * 103 km
  • = 175.38 * 103 mile
  • = 152.4 * 103 nautical mile
